with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
plans forward. they want to know what the president will do over the course of the next four years. and how exactly we'll get there. >> reporter: with polls showing mr. obama leading in the crucial swing states, top aides have encouraged the president to be himself, don't change what's working, one senior adviser said. for his part romney's advisers say he's prepared, that he just needs to convey his message clearly on the biggest stage of his political career. and throughout the primary debates, brian, mitt romney would write his father's name, george romney, on the top of his notepad. his father, of course, being his inspiration. he would also write one other letter, "o" to remind him to focus on president obama. but tonight when they are finally side by side, he probably won't need any reminders. >> peter alexander in the hall, thanks for starting us off tonight. >>> now over to our political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd also at the venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns
. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in the 1960's 197's combined by the republicans. the president has an opportunity to come back if the republicans de
and gave him a big boost in the polls the next day. in a cbs poll asking uncommitted voters who won, romney got 46% and president obama got 62%. what about -- 22%. 32% said it was tie. these reactions are taken overnight and reactions may change, people's reactions may change but the media narrative stays the same. >> we'll see about this one. the polls on friday, rasmussen and we ask america both showed romney pulling ahead by a slim margin. i will predict the people who are complaining bitterly about the polls a week ago will not complain anymore. gallup organization had a blog about the methodology of this. the polls are what they are. they are a snapshots of opinion but they i don't think they cooked either way. therefore, i think conservatives should be happy. >> jon: there was the "washington post" poll that ran on monday. judy is nodding her head. 41% for governor romney, 52% for president obama in this "washington post" poll. 52% of likely voters across swing states side with obama. 41% romney in the new national poll. the problem here there was a margin of error of 8 points and the
it indirectly. and romney's also changed -- i'm sorry. obama has changed his tune on the promise for the future. the new plan, he said, starting august 8th in colorado and repeated is he won't raise your taxes next year. so after 2013 there is no promise from obama for any american on any tax protection. he's open to raising taxes on anyone and everyone. and he's going to have to because even with his tax increases on the higher income people, he runs a $6.7 trillion debt over the next decade. and that buffett rule tax raises less than 1% of the debt he's running up. he's got to go straight at the heart of the middle class to pay for his bigger government. >> i think it's very interesting. i still have not heard from mr. norquist whether any tax increases should be necessary to deal with the budget deficit and the budget deficit we face as a country. are we going to try to do this all through spending cuts? and if so, how in the world do we do it without eviscerating medicare, medicaid, social security, and military spending? >> well, very clearly as you know, the republicans actually have a pl

. >> thousands of progressives. >> saying where is that? i do think on the next one, we talk about expectations. mitt romney is this great debater. he buried the president in the first debate. if president obama even does pretty well, if he does start to fight back, you know the press will come along and others will come along and say the president's back. he was unprepared for the first time. i'll be interested to see how long this first debate carries mitt romney. if the president has a good second debate, does it wipe out the first one? i don't know. >> i have a theory why that happened. it wasn't that he didn't have the facts at his command. it was that strategically, they said going in so much, you're here, he's there. there's none of this. there's none of this. when he talks, you don't look at him. when you talk, you don't look at him. you don't even respond to him. he's not there. and that's what translated to the pathetic performance and also what seemed to not have the facts at his hands. i think it was an overarching no-engagement strategy. these were simple facts. these were simple r

of questions about obama and his personal life and his youth that they do not focus on. host: next up, greg on our line for independents. caller: i have an interesting take on the spirit we have always had some type of media bias by the people who control the media -- i have an interesting take on this. we have always had some type of media bias by the people who control the media. we have always had that kind of control and that type of influence, and we should probably work on what the powerful people are doing and not one a president, because he has a very limited field of power, is able to control -- not what a president is able to control. guest: as someone who has gotten into the white house media room, a day passed does get you in the doorway. i thought jeff cannon's question was embarrassing because it sounded like he was asking the president to agree with him that democrats are morons -- i questionjeff gannon's was embarrassing. anybody who is a reporter wants to ask a question that is supposed to elicit information. when i had questions to ask ari fleischer, it would be how they t

be an interesting week ahead. president obama is in henderson nevada where he's practicing for the next couple of days. both the president and mitt romney's camps are trying to lower expectations so that if someone does particularly well, it will be an apparent surprise. we heard over the weekend that mitt romney is working on some hard-hitting one-liners because he has that well-timed sense of humor thing. here's the president in response to that news. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. governor romney is a good debater. >> not so sure if he's a good zinger. the presidential last debate was back in 2008. he and mitt romney have never gone head to head. romney does need a win to make this a game changer. the match-up will be wednesday night in denver and of course, we know that you'll be tuned in right here to current tv tv for all of our pre and post-debate coverage. 83% of respondents to a new abc news poll said they're interested in the debates as well. so yo

. republicans were thrilled with his performance. democrats were not so thrilled with president obama's performance. the question is going to be has mitt romney been able in a race where he's been clearly behind the president to hurt him enough and sustain that momentum over the next three weeks. that's what's really critical. there have been strong debates, john kerry had a strong debate against george w. bush in 2004. but he wasn't able to translate that into lasting benefit. that's the best of the next three weeks, to see whether romney can keep it going or whether president obama comes out with a higher level of aggression, higher level of energy in the next debate and stop the momentum that romney accumulated last night. >> okay. yeah, i had so many different thoughts, john, as we watched the whole thing. i remember that a lot of republicans were supporting newt gingrich because just for this moment, they wanted -- they thought newt was such a great debater, they wanted to see someone like newt talk to president obama about his policies and about the last four years. and they tho
trouble ahead. this is about the drop in durable goods that was reported yesterday and the headline next to it is, obama trumpets revised job data, saying we are adding jobs. how would you describe our economy today? >> guest: i think right now the economy has worsened. you have got a jobs problem pretty severe and persistent. at 8.1% of the country without a job and of course we know that does not include those who have simply stopped looking so then employment rate is or like 11 or 12% of the country. you mentioned the durable goods numbers yesterday. that indicated things like washing machines and other big-ticket expensive items, waiting to put big money down on important purchases and then of course you have got the gdp numbers yesterday which came out and showed that growth was revised downward, economic growth was revised downward to show it a gross number of 1.3% which is pretty anemic. that is down from 1.7% so from that report we say things have actually worsened in the last couple of months in the neo-got the issue of business is businesses really sitting on their cash. right
about the drop in durable goods that was reported yesterday and the headline next to it is obama trumpets revise job data, saying we are adding jobs. how would you describe our economy today? >> guest: well, i think right now the economy has worsening. you've got jobs problem pretty severe and persistent. 8.1% of the country without a job. of course we know that does not include those who simply stopped looking. the unemployment rate is more like 11% or 12% of the country. he mentioned durable goods numbers yesterday that indicated the big ticket items things like washing machines and other big-ticket expensive items has slowed. people are waiting to put big money down on important purchases. and then of course he got the gdp numbers yesterday, which came out and showed that growth was revised downward, economic growth revised downward to show a growth number of 1.3%, which is pretty anemic. down from 1.7%. from that report we see things have actually worsened in the last couple months. then effect the issue of business is sitting on cash. right now corporate america frankly is p
.n. general semibly. secretary of state hillary clinton told him that the obama administration would begin easing its ban on imports from myanmar. >> in recognition of the continued progress toward reform and in response to requests from both the government and the opposition, united states is taking the next step in normalizing our commercial relationship. >> reporter: he expressed his gratitude and said the people of myanmar would be happy that economic restrictions are being eased. clinton made a point of reminding him the division of aung san suu kyi. she visited the u.s. earlier this month for the first time since her release from the house arrest in november 2010. she and clinton together gave a lecture in washington calling for more investment in education and health care in myanmar. obama administration is expected to seek congressional approval to ease sanction while also monitoring the progress of myanmar's democratic reforms. myanmar is home to 60 million people and rich in natural resources. its strategic location in asia gives it the potential to become a trading hub. they nee
is that president obama and congressman ryan have almost the exact same proposal for the next ten years, save $1 trillion from medicare, not by cutting benefits or raising costs to elderly, but reducing payments to hospitals and other kind of providers. interestingly those two are in the same place on the next two years. romney for whatever set of reasons says he doesn't want to do anything in the next ten years, which means that $1 trillion that his vice presidential running mate would save he does not want to save. he's in a different place on the next ten years. so let's go to the period after that. what's the long-term plan that each of these guys has for cost containment. again, very interestingly, president obama congressman ryan want to achieve exactly the same level of medicare spending over the definite future. they want to increase by gdp plus 1.5%. they would get there different ways. president obama would get there by efficiencies, new methods. ryan would get there by having private competition. in terms of the actual dollars, it's the same. romney, again, we can ask why, does not wa
either. >> good point. >> susan, thanks. >>> president obama and mitt romney prepping heavily for the first debate less than 24 hours away. how high are the stakes? who has the edge? what are each candidate's weak spots? we'll look at that next in the program. >>> a border patrol agent shot and killed and another wounded. what happened in arizona? details ahead. >>> less than 24 hours from now, with the election five weeks away, president obama and mitt romney will face off. both men have been prepping heavily. evidence shows presidential debates can shift a race. joining me now alan schroeder, a professor of the school of journalism in northeast university in boston. author of "presidential debates, 50 years of high-risk tv" and patrick millsap who served as chief of staff in newt gingrich's campaign. patrick, you say that newt gingrich's pious baa loney line is one of the strongest hits during his campaign run against mitt romney. >> can we drop some of the pious baloney? you ran in '94 and lost. that's why you weren't serving in the senate for rick santorum. suddenly citize
in the next couple of days i'm going to be looking at the numbers in the other thing very quickly in terms of the minority vote. the other thing about barack obama's election in 2008 was the one something on the order of 43% of the white vote and in most of the national polls that is kind of where he is so that will be another number to look out for. the country is changing and in 2008, three-quarters of the electorate was white which was down from the mid-to high 80s 20 years ago and that number is going to change. and the question is in a very close election i don't think anyone thought it would get seven-point race. i think they thought it would be a two or three-point race. the metrics are there for him to win. speak to me, and i'm sorry to interrupt but to me i wanted to -- to meet the most stunning numbers from 2008, if you take out the 29-year-olds and look at the 30 plus mccain and obama tied and that shows you how important the youth vote is to the president by the way that is why you are seeing air force one showing up at airports near major university in three states on a regula
greater growth in the second quarter of ?iew and still lost than president obama had in this quarter so the economy is worse off. i also know that unemployment is higher than it was under george walker bush. i can't say for sure, but i think the next highest unemployment rate that a president's been re-elected at was 7.2% under reagan. i can't say for sure, but i think it was under 6.5% for george hw bush. i don't know what the inflation rate or interest rate was, but the economy was in better shape in 1992 by any objective measure than it has in 2012 so president obama's in big trouble. >> hi, i just want to take the opportunity to thank you because you use your gifted brain and your considerable verbal skills, writing skills, energy, and fly all over. i'm grateful you're able to do that. >> my great pleasure, thank you. >> my question is what can little people, individual little people do the best right now to support mitt romney? i was a rick santorum supporter, and i'm grateful to have seen it play out. when everybody was played out, now it seems like we're all standing strong and f

that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no. not the president. romney's biggest weakness. >> well, i think part of the challenge is how do you succinctly get to that and at the same time when you only have 90 seconds or 120 seconds to answer a question then also be able to share your vision and your compassion to the voters that are watching at home. to be able to contrast the president's record and his vision, share with that in a compassionate way, that's challenging to do in 120 seconds. >> here's a big challenge that the president has, bill. look at this. likely voters we asked who will win the presidential debate? 56% said the president. 32% sai
. and in april of this year republicans proposed slashing more than half the agency's budget. the next month they voted to curtail most of its powers. when president obama obama appointed richard cord gri, mitt romney slammed the administration himself saying in a statement, president obama's consumer financial practices bureau is the most powerful and unaccountable bureaucracy in the history of our nation. instead of focusing on economic growth, president obama is once again focused on creating more regulation, government and more washington gridlock. joining us is alexis goldstein, a former vice president at merrill lynch and an occupy wall street activist and dedrick muhammad from the naacp. i found this moment frustrating as you can maybe tell. what's really interesting to me is there are real critiques to be leveled at dodd-frank, critiques that didn't go far enough, but republicans have tried to pull off this thing and mitt romney was doing it in the debate where he's kind of appropriating the left critique of dodd-frank and not going far enough in service of essentially defending dere

obama not pushing as many throughout as bush did. the courts are so important, and they should be discussed in this campaign. i hope in this next debate -- it is important that this has gone under the radar. the presidents are not individual -- not just individuals. they come with advisers. president reagan's nominee robert bork was rejected by the senate for being way out of the mainstream in this country. he did not believe the equal protection clause applies to women. he is opposed to the voting rights act and the silver rights act of 1964. and he believed that corporations are people. he would play a very destructive role in a court of common sense, fairness, justice, diversity of equality and opportunity. those are not left-right issues. i think we need to take a hard look at the courts and the political intensity gap, where the right does understand the court and its powers but the progressive, liberal democratic community has stepped back and not engage with that judicial process or the courts as effectively as they could. host: there are four students on the bus who did
are gearing up for next week's big event. wednesday's first presidential debate between the two contenders. both sides are working hard to shape expectations. beth myers sent out a memo that read in part . . . and obama campaign senior strategy david axelrod wrote, and i quote . . . for more on the expectations gain i'm joined by brent brent coburn. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> eliot: the expectation game, could we agree for the moment they are both really smart guys and we're hopefully going to have a good debate about substance. >> that's our hope. the debates a great opportunity for the american people tune in and the candidates tell their stories. that's what we plan to do. we hope the romney campaign comes prepared to do the same thing. beside his technical -- technical skills as a debater, we hope he finally comes to the table with some details. >> eliot: i think the american public and my perspective in all of this is no mystery, i share that there has been no specificity, the week there was supposed to be specificity it was swept away wi
vote for barack obama and joe biden. >> i was there. you electrified the place. they all say why do we have the 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton run and be president for the next 30 years? >> we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president. you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked, i think, well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third term. when he died shortly after being elected to a fourth term and people didn't really know a full measure of his health challenges, the 22nd amendment passed. it's ironic at a time people thought the democrats had a lot in the white house. then it was, then after the last 50 years, the republicans had it more than the democrats. but, i think there's still an argument for saying that eight years, certainly eight years in a row is enough. you don't want this -- you don't want to run the risk of sclerosis in a democratic society. you don't want to give the idea that any country, particularly this one as big and diverse is dependent on any one person. look at the dictators that ha
? >> no, i don't. the expectations are most americans believe president obama's going to win the debates. that's why it's a great opportunity for governor romney to have an upset. he needs an upset. i think that he can do that on this debate and the next two debates. we go back historically, we remember it was a game changer when president kennedy debated richard nixon. same was true with ronald reagan when he debated jimmy carter. it can make a difference. mitt romney needs to come out and be very aggressive about the president's policies and his solutions. and i think he will do real good. >> we know they've been rehearsing zingers or we're told by a "new york times" report this morning that mitt romney has been practicing zingers. i guess practicing them on some of his aides as well. you just talked about substance. others have been focusing on, well, really it's the moments and the zingers that make the difference. which do you think it is? >> there has to be a sense throughout -- at the end of the debate, the viewer will have a sense as to who can be the better leader for the united
the board and the keystone pipeline that is very specific within the first 100 days. lou: obama must think good thing it is from a and not reince priebus. >> the president needs to stop calling names and playing high-school student government and getting serious and how will the next four years me any better. >> we are seeing some battleground states in national polls in ohio is a significant lead and how concerned are you it could move that measure? >> you may have six tiers 70 million people watching. the debates matter is important for americans to focus not fighting for the future of the american -- republican party this president is not your daddy's democrats. bill clinton nor john kennedy but leftist in the white house that we have to defeat. lou: is the governor romney going to b.v. tea explainer in chief? obama's made a joke he was as clear and articulating the policies that have been followed clearer than anyone in the administration. >> i think it will be very clear. those five points you hear about and you have to be concise and clear that is what romney has been but what is the
five weeks, what, the next four years will be no better than last four years, something like that. very positive. if you elect obama. i happen to believe that star and that's why i'm not for reelection president obama but is not a very inspiring forward-looking spoken about what mid-romney will do. it's hard to blame the guy who wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast, casting approach to democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about ron is just bush, there is a war on women and all that but i don't go get the kind of frame you would like. i'm a little is pessimistic. i do think reality matters, as we've been saying. we are going to hit the cliff in all kinds of ways. be any fiscal cliff in the real clip in 2013 is you can't sustain these deficits obviously for too long because they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or buy treasury notes forever. the economy is slow and they will be coming into another dip. they are foreign policy challenges i think the next president will have a moment between november 7, i agree just to begin nov
of the president but also tell the story about what he wants to do in the next four years. he has to get a lot done in the first half an hour because it's a cliche, but the first impression does count. >> and how -- the second thing is how hard will president obama come out swinging? >> i think president obama's entire campaign going back tokts of last year, andrea, against governor romney has been really tough, really aggressive and i think you're going to see that once again tonight. he will say mitt, you ssupport same policies that got us into this mess, he will go after the tax cuts for the rich, wall street regulations, we know what he's going to say and no doubt he's going to say it off the bat. >> the third thing the magic 47%, how high that's going to play and whether or not mitt romney can sneak in benghazi and the foreign policy attack lines in a domestic debate? >> the most telling tv ad in the last two weeks has been the obama decision to put the romney comments about the 47% by itself in a tv ad. that tells me that they're pulling and their polling and focus groups were devastating whe
they call the 3 ds. dissatisfied, disappointed and disenchanted obama voters. it's about convincing them that over the next four years, you will do a better job to improve their lives. what they're looking for is those, that narrower and narrower slice of swing voters. i mean, he's got a double job to do. >> he had a convention speech and he wasn't able to do it. >> that's why he's got to do it tonight. so but he's got a double job. he's got to talk to those swing voters who are disaffected about president obama, but then make sure his base turns out and he's got to get the base enthusiastic. now, what the base wants and those swing voters want maybe two different things. >> but how many people are still undecided? >> this many. >> but there are still people who are persuadable. >> have debates really persuaded them. >> john kerry, going into that first debate, was seven points behind. after that first debate, he was only two points behind. now, we know he ended up losing because president bush came back and did a better job in the second debate. but it did narrow the gap for john kerry.
think that obama is laughing his ass off because he knows he can manipulate them and get them to say anything he wants. it's fascinating. >> and dangerous. >> sean: liz cheney, thank you. >> thank you. >> sean: coming up next, now that she is not on the campaign trail, calista gingrich is going to make sure that thrn -- children actually know about american history. next.

. that president obama knows that medicare is-- we're spending too much on it, and his secret plan, he proposed cutting $250 billion in medicare over the next 10 years, which is exactly what the republicans are proposing. people are running away from the reality of this crisis. and i would argue-- i mean, mark's right, the economy looks good but it can go into a tailspin in the coming months, if somebody does not-- even before a new president or obama begins a second term takes office. in this i'm really not overstating this. anyone who knows about not just the fiscal cliff but the issue, this government is going to have to go into the debt market beginning of next year and ask to borrow another $1 trillion or 2 dollars. they couldn't settle this last year or this year. how are they going to settle it next year? >> bob, this sounds awfully bleak, and it's not. i think our prospects are actually quite priet. the private sector has made a lot of progress. american businesses have reduced their cost structure. their profit margins are as wide as they ever. banks are highly capitalized. even americ
challenge is not so much to make a case against president obama over the last four years. there's no question voters are ambivalent about the performance. he's got to make a case that he can make the next four years better. we have a poll out, national journal poll. are you better off? are you worse off? or about the same as four years ago. among the about the same folks, people who don't say they see any improvement over obama the president is still leading by over 20 points. that is what romney has to change. >> i want to share something "the new york times" says. the romney team has been included the debates are about moments and have equipped him with a dear riis of zingers he has memorized and been practicing on aides since august. we've got some here that we want to share. >> there you go again. i want you to know that also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no j

anything under control. we have to think about that. gentlemen, very interesting discussion. next up, factor exclusive. we'll talk to the man who prepped mitt romney for his republican primary debates, right back with that report. >> bill: impact segment, president obama in nevada, mitt romney in colorado. both prepping for the big debate tomorrow night. remember when newt gingrich clocked the governor in the south carolina debate last spring, romney came back strong in florida. the man who helped prepare the governor for those debates, brett o'donnell joins us now. you really know this turf because you worked for john mccain when he ran against barak obama in 2008 and now in the primary season, you worked for mitt romney. let's assess the governor's strengths and weaknesses as a debater first. strengths? >> well, i think the governor is a very good messenger. he's a good orator, he can deliver a speech. he's very good when he's on message and on offense. as you saw in the debates in florida against newt gingrich when he got on offense, the governor was very effective. when he leans
's going continue to struggle on the front. i think the obama campaign going in to the debates, doesn't the burden here. but probably would, you know, should talk about what the next four years will be like, and i expect that that will happy during the debate. but i said that here. because i'm talking tactically here. the challenger has the burden. we have a history with barack obama. we have a sense what he's done. we have a sense what he's like and what he will do. when you're the challenger, you have to say why you will be cimpt. and obama did that in 2008, and that's the thing that romney is going have -- i think will be need to do. we are evaluating one of the president as the champion, so to speak in boxing terms. we are evaluating one of the challenger. if you don't play the role of the challenge netter minds of people, well, then it's hard to imagine you'll play the role of the champ well. that's my own sort of two cents on that. >> we all know that the words we use are very important. on the campaign that you worked on, how did the candidate choose which keywords or catch pha
mitt romney as the next president of the united states. >> reporter: the day's events were overshadowed by a video of senator obama reading off a prepared script. before a predominantly black audience he inplayed the federal government held back money after hurricane katrina based on race. he noticed hurricane andrew in florida the government's response was -- >> we won't wait for to you scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. >> reporter: after katrina he said it was different. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? tells me somehow the people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> reporter: in this speech that we saw last night the president said he didn't think the initial response to hurricane katrina was motivated by race. he said that incompetence was colorblind. this speech was covered in 2007. it was aired last night on the conservative media, fox's sean hannity. that prompted that some speculate that the right is concerned about this campaign. >> also on the debate site is kevin madden a senior adviser to the romney
states. and that raises his stature. so for the first time the voters will see him standing there next to the president, look at him and see how presidential he looks. that helps. that has helped previous candidates. that helped reagan against carter. that helped obama in 2008 against -- that was different because mccain wasn't president. but it helps when you're a challenger and you stand there next to the president of the united states it can raise your stature and that can help romney. >> can i put you on the spot and ask you who you think is going to fare better? >> oh, boy. you know, i've been wrong on so many predictions. >> that's okay. >> look my basic view of this is that by the time we get into october, a lot of voters have made up their mind. undecided voters, early voting has already started. >> are you -- >> i'm getting to it. downplay the drama of the debates but the truth is, you know, historically the conventions have mattered a lot more than the debates. and by this time in the campaign, it's really hard to change. >> that's true but sometimes they have mattered, right
tax cuts. it also faces the spending cuts of 130 -- unless president obama does something about it. leading up to what you might do next session, do think those cuts should be allowed to expire? if not, how would to modify those plans? >> the fiscal clef is a very serious issue. -- cliff is a very serious issue. sequestration is indiscriminate and arbitrary across-the-board cuts and would devastate our economy. it is not the right prescription. i support the president's's plan which is a balanced approach. we have twin challenges facing us. we need to reduce our debt bank and energize our economy. i think with investments in education and research, a middle-class, that is the solution. >> we are heading for a recession unless we do something. my opponent has been in congress for 14 years. the debt has gone from $6 trillion to $16 trillion. she has voted for a lot of those spending programs. she introduced programs to increase the spending. she is voting for 100 tax increases. what are we going to do in january? we have got to make sure we address the taxes, we can no longer afford
